In the past 30 years, non traditional methods of communication have become commonplace, like email, text messaging, video chat, smart phones, tablets and storing things in clouds. The "Age of Information" has introduced new elements into modern life, now available during the early stages of communication development. Today, technology has profound influence on how we interact with each other daily. It also has become the perfect forum for conflict, misunderstanding and stress. The pitfalls of poor, or even nonexistent, communication have become more and more readily available. But what can we do about it? What does it take to inspire a new direction? What would be necessary? Where do we begin?

The Mind Prepared ® is a professional performance communication course designed to improve an individuals ability to meet the needs of others, maintain dignified and respectful interactivity, while address our professional and personal needs. Are you aware of how you perform during situations which require you to be well composed despite the circumstance? It begins with what is considered "conflict preparedness". In modern society, many are raised not to be taken advantage of, as a precaution. However, once a situation arises, how prepared is one to handle the experiences taking place internally, which will affect or influence what takes place externally? This course examines, deconstructs and reconstructs various elements governing these experiences.
A professional speaker, formerly with The Verbal Judo Institute, Brandon Silvestry brings nearly two decades of professional performance experience in various fields of business, including the private and corporate sectors of the entertainment and video game industries.
